Abortion and Parental Rights
Here’s a hypothetical that I’ve been pondering, and I’m curious to hear what other things. Suppose a state passed a law that prohibited doctors from telling parents the sex of their fetus. The rationale for this would be that sex-selection abortions are deemed morally wrong by society. (All other information about the fetus could be disclosed.) Would such a statute be invalid? If so, why? Parental right to know? An ‘undue burden” on the right to have an abortion?
